Aimhigher Cumbria and the STEM curriculum
REAP is evaluating Aimhigher Cumbria's Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) funded provision and its contribution to awareness, aspiration and attainment of primary and secondary pupils in Cumbria. It is a case study of enabling, process and outcome indicators concerning Cumbria learners' transition from primary to secondary school/post 16 to Higher Education with respect to STEM subjects. Most of the STEM activities were provided by Cumbria STEM Centre Ltd.
"Crest in a day: flight" is a newly developed activity from Cumbria STEM Centre Ltd. To obtain a Bronze Crest award, pupils undertake 10 hours of study which includes a full day of in-school activities, individual research prior to this day and group presentations of their findings after the event. During the in-school event, pupils design, make and test a number of paper planes in order to compare their aerodynamic qualities. Pupils also make and test paper rockets which pupils customise from pre-packaged kits.
